Hi guys! I played yesterday with Cirse, I just wake up and in around 1 hour I have to go to the sound check of this night's gig. GIGS days are usually very long and I feel a bit tired today.

Have you ever had many gigs together? How did you feel?


This is a backstage pic waiting for the show yesterday. You can see me practising with a nice Schecter Tempest Custom. smile.gif

Yeah, it can be fatiguing.
Next saturday I have three different gigs in one day. One in the day and two at night back to back. Thankfully the two at night are in the same venue (though with two different bands).
*I have had two separate gigs in one night at different venues. In Los Angeles that can be stressful due to potential traffic and parking issues.
And when you tour, no matter how 'big-time' or indie it is, you're giging almost every day. In that case the gigs are the easy part. It's the traveling that can be a bitch.

That's a lot mate! I had 2 gigs in one day, but never 3! Then tell us how it goes! Good luck with the gigs. smile.gif

I can tell you how it'll go right now.
The first two will be good ... I will have no idea what I'm doing or what I did on the third one.

It's worse for singers! Even with good technique (and who in rock music uses perfect technique live?!) many gigs in close succession don't give the vocal chords enough rest.

I only had two gigs one after the other in one day max, so three would be a first timer smile.gif But hell man, if your body can take it, if the conditions and the company are good, you kind of tend to forget about everything else which is nasty, right? wink.gif

Two gigs is not uncommon here (L.A., Nashville, Austin, NYC) but three can be problematic.
The two night time gigs are similar and I'll use the same set-up but the day time gig is a completely different thing so I have to bring two rigs around that day (also a change of clothes). I'm hoping I can go home between gig 1 and 2.
*And I literally just realized that I also have a 'brunch' jazz gig on sunday (the next day) from 11:00 to 1:00.
The musicians are all cool so everything will be fun and I'm sure go smoothly. It's more about keeping my head on straight. Where am I and what songs do we play?

What makes me laugh is that I've got nothing going on next week except on wednesday (and maybe a banjo session but that's a big 'maybe') and then slammed on the weekend - feast or famine. To be honest, I never get 'used' to that.

And yes, singers have it way worse when they have to do what we call a 'double' (two gigs in one day).

yeah, mostly for rocker or metal singers that use to scream a lot on gigs.
